“Great cottage in a superb location !”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

An excellent base to explore the surrounding countryside, from a massive open fire to a dinner table big enough to seat 8 Black Dog has it all. Fantastic river walks just across the road by the park and just round the corner from the pub.
The house has limited outside space but this is more than made up with the space inside, we were two families with eight bikes and four kids aged from 5-8.
If you're looking for boutique style accommodation then this is not for you but, if you're after excellent period accommodation geographically located to take advantage of all the area has to offer then this will be right up your street

Thank you for a lovely review Libby, and boutique doesn't really suit Weardale, and I love it for that. Hope to see you again, and all the best, Martin

“Wonderful Weardale”

This is a perfect place to stay to explore Weardale. The house is really comfortable and well appointed. ..a real home from home. The pub over the road brews its own beer. ..delicious! The food is scrumptious, reasonably priced and plentiful. We had a brilliant week.

Second weekend stay here for our group ( friends who work together). We loved it so much in July, we couldn't wait to get back for Christmas. The house is cosy and comfortable, and can easily sleep 11adults if 3 of them don't mind inflatable beds. It is clean and warm, and the poem log fire in the sitting room is wonderful. There is a log burner in the dining room too. The owner has thoughtfully provided anything you could wish for...loads of books, DVDs and games, telescope, iPod Dock with speakers etc. He even left out a Christmas tree for us to decorate! We thought we had a problem with hot water and both he and his housekeeper were on hand immediately to sort it out. Turns out we were being a bit thick and it was fine...the poor man was lovely, even though we had wasted a good chunk of his Saturday. The Hare and Hounds pub across the road is wonderful. Everyone is very friendly and the food is delicious. The area is stunningly beautiful and there are some wonderful walks. We had a great trip out to Stanhope, which has some quirky and original shops. Anyway, to summarise, Black Dog House is a wonderful place to stay for a large group of people. We will be back again in the summer so that we can enjoy a barbecue on the patio...a fabulous sun trap. Highly recommended!!
